Twitter Will Be Parting Ways With VINE

chuckfallingasleepredux

Vine will no longer be apart of our Twitter lives…but are we concered? Probably not.

Today, Twitter has announced that it is closing its video sharing doors with the four year old Vine service. As the company did not give a reason why they were slashing the service, on Thursday they announced it was cutting 9% of its workforce following slow growth of the social network.

573

Vine reports via the company’s blog:

Today, we are sharing the news that in the coming months we’ll be discontinuing the mobile app.

Nothing is happening to the apps, website or your Vines today. We value you, your Vines, and are going to do this the right way. You’ll be able to access and download your Vines. We’ll be keeping the website online because we think it’s important to still be able to watch all the incredible Vines that have been made. You will be notified before we make any changes to the app or website.

What’s next? We’ll be working closely with creators to make sure your questions are answered and will work hard to do this the right way. We’ll be sharing more details on this blog and our Twitter account, and will notify you through the app when we start to change things.

At this point, it’s quite clear that Vine didn’t keep up with the evolving changes especially via Snapchat and IG’s Instagram Stories, plus the 20-second video that you can just simply add to Twitter itself.

Can we say…R.I.P. Vine? Pretty much.

To keep up with any more changes via Vine, stay connected to their official blog for more info.

Kim Kardashian couldn’t let her husband Kanye West have all of the attention now could she?

Late last night Kim announced her return to the thirst trapping world by posting a nude selfie that with her breast and private area conveniently blocked by black bars with the caption stating “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL”.

Which must have to be countless numbers of times already but we stopped counting a long time ago. Of course the internet immediately reacted both positively and negatively to Kim once again taking the time to remind us she has one of the best bodies money can buy literally. One tweet in particular stood out more than the others. The shadiest tweet of them all came from none other than the iconic actress Bette Midler. As of late her Twitter fingers have been deadly and this time the victim is Kim K. Peep the shady tweet below :

Well damn Bette!

Fly Interview: August Alsina Talks New Music, Love/Hate with Social Media, His Beloved Brother, Usher, 2 Chainz & more with SFPL TV

august-alsina-sfpl-tv
In the midst of prepping for his forthcoming album release of This Thing Called Life and his current single “Song Cry”, which is taking over the radio waves and charts, singer/songwriter August Alsina stopped by SFPL TV to catch us up on a few about his music, how he really feels about social media, touring with Usher, 2 Chainz being the first to put him on tour, his brother, personal happenings in his life, and so much more.

About his new album #TTCL: 

It’s really, man…”My Journey.” Life has taken me places. I mean, up, down, all around…just taking me places. The good, the bad, i’ve been through it — i’ve dealt with it all. We born, we got put here, we don’t really know what this is all about. We’re all just here trying to figure it out — trying to be a better version of ourselves each and every day. And that’s what my album is, it’s about the Journey. Me trying to figure out “This Thing Called Life.”

What would a conversation with his deceased brother be like today if he were alive:

Ahhhhh…it would probably be very stupid [he says jokily, as he laughs with a huge smile]. You know, my brother always believed in me. Like ALWAYS. To the point where he used to lie to people actually like: “Yeah, my brother got a deal, wu wuu wuuu” — before I even had a deal. He use to just tell people: “Yeah, my brother got a deal, he doing this, and he doing that.” So, I think the conversation would be: “I proud of you n****, like this is dope what you doing.” You know, I think it would be an “I always knew” kind of conversation. I mean, he knew and believed in me before I did; believe in myself.

Fly Visual: Katie Got Bandz Releases A New Anthem That Fits Social Media Perfectly

katie-petty

P-E-T-T-Y….YOU PETTY!

Katie Got Bandz could not have delivered her new visual at a more perfect time! Running with the popular catchphrase “Petty”, Katie puts all social media connoisseurs on blast who just can’t seem to get their life right, especially over an “instagram like.”

In the visual, Katie drops in, once summoned: “Like a good neighbor, Katie is there!”, on a couple who seems to be fighting over an IG Like; which the girlfriend keys her BF’s car in return. Katie, then diffuses the situation and tells the girlfriend, “you petty!”. Just as simple as that.

Katie has also collab with Jeremih and Plies on previous tracks.

Check it out below to see what Ms. Bandz has to say about all the so-called “instafamous” social media folks below:

**Premiere** Fly Acoustics: Singer Tweet Talks New Album ‘Charlene’, 8-Year Hiatus, Performs Single “Won’t Hurt Me” & more

tweet-fly-acoustics

After a very long music hiatus, our favorite songbird is back and ready to deliver!

Singer/Songwriter Tweet, stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s premiere of Fly Acoustics, a music series where artists get personal, share past & present experiences, all while presenting new music, and delivering a LIVE acoustic performance to media conglomerates and fans on-site.

While kicking the segment off, Tweet spoke on why she took time off:

I have been preparing myself for this moment, just getting myself together spiritually after the second album didn’t go too well — I decided to take a break and kinda get my life spiritually together. So, in that I rededicated myself to Christ — so he would orchestrate everything that’s happening now. And, I also signed to a couple of labels, and it just didn’t work out.

Since her last 2005 album, It’s Me Again, Tweet followed up with a new EP 8-years later entitled Simply Tweet.

Tweet’s new forthcoming album Charlene (Jan. 2016) gives us a journey through her written diary, sharing the up and downs of life, and what she was going through within the hiatus.

Tweet also talks about wanting to get back to “real soul music,” that makes you think, that speaks of liberation for women, and just simply that “good feeling.” She even speaks of perhaps doing a full Gospel album one day, per request from her aunt, Juanita before she passed away.

Check out the FULL visual of our very own, ‘Fly Acoustics’ below with a special performance from Tweet of new single “Won’t Hurt Me”:

Gabriel says:

Jay IDK is the next-level up. His charisma, his vibe, his flow, his consistency of knowing the direction of his brand and sound; draws attention to his musicality. He has a lot to say and will jump ahead of the rap game in due time. He’s humble but his hunger for music speaks volumes.
